Hello I'm new to git and even more to egit.

I've just started working on a new project, I created a local repository with 3 branches. They appear only in the Branches->Local.

This is what I have now:

Why it doesn't appear in the remote tracked, since I pushed it to the server?

Local branches are used to track local development, they are moving when you create a new commit
or checkout a different branch or reset to another commit. Remote tracking branches are tracking branches
in another repository, so they are a kind of proxy for a branch in another repository. These move when
clone/fetch brings new versions to your local repository.

Your repository never fetched from another repository hence there are no remote tracking branches.
